  • bleeding (the most common) after a bowel movement.
  • actual pain (rare).When they become thrombosed and protrude from the rectum, the condition can become painful.
What are the causes? As mentioned before, they are the result of pressure on the veins in the anal and rectal areas. And it can be prompted by various different things. Below is a list of some of the more common triggers.
  • Straining excessively when having a bowel movement
  • Sitting for prolonged periods of time when performing a bowel movement
  • Rushing to finish a bowel movement, causing additional strain on the region
  • Pregnancy - additional weight to bear, as well as pushing during labor
  • Aging - the muscles in the area lose strength over time and become more susceptible to pressure

Can emuaid help stop bleeding with stage 4 hemmoriods.
No. When internal hemorrhoids reach stage IV, all the earlier symptoms of itching, burning, pain and prolapse are present. The difference in stage IV over all the earlier stages is that the hemroids can no longer be manipulated back into place in the rectum. Because of this, strangulation is possible, whereby the sphincter muscle of the anus constricts on the protruding hemroid causing pain and even thrombosis. When internal hemroids reach this stage, a doctor’s intervention is required, and treatments like surgery or laser coagulation may be necessary.
